It’s here!! I had to wait for 12:00PT to get the pattern, so I organized everything. It’s one of my favorite parts of a project, honestly. I’m so chuffed about the stitch organizer they sent and my little Yoshi egg needle minder (from P).
The first pattern is for January, (the Owl and the Pussycat!), plus the entire border and center motif. I found it easier to stitch the center motif first then go to the first Monty’s pattern. After watching lots of Game of Thrones episodes and a couple movies, as well as taking this with me everywhere I’m this far:
I’m working on the Dr sampler, too. I decided I’ll add the backstitch as I go as well. I’m working on a page at a time. There is a lot going on so I think if I just do one page at a time, including the backstitching, I won’t get overwhelmed or bored. I usually backstitch everything last, so we’ll see how this goes.
Monthly progress pics! I take them as often as I can remember…I love the color scheme of the border and the fabric is so soft. I’m having so. much. fun.
I think I’ll go over the stars with some rayon thread to make them pop out a little better. Onto February!
P.S. Sorry about the hiatus. You know how it is, life gets busy, and some things have to wait, like blogging. ;-) Hope you are having fun stitching something too!
